The Lewisham Branch of the Celia Hammond Animal Trust opened in October 1995 with the main objective being the provision of a low cost neuter and vaccination clinic, thus bringing responsible pet ownership within the reach of everyone. The centre is now both a busy veterinary clinic providing low cost neutering and veterinary services for pets belonging to owners on benefits or a low income and a busy cat rescue and homing centre for unwanted, abandoned, stray and feral cats. More information can be found on our Homing FAQ page: http://www.celiahammond.org/index.php/faqs/homing-a-cat
Lewisham Branch Rescue Centre is open every Saturday and Sunday afternoon between 1.00pm and 5.00pm.
Our Open Days are an opportunity for you to come and meet us and some of our cats and to discuss offering a home. We have all sorts of cats needing homes from pairs of kittens to elderly cats. Cats needing homes with gardens and cats suitable for indoor only homes. Single cats, pairs or trio's and not forgetting feral and semi-feral cats who are seeking suitable outdoor homes.
Our cats and kittens are rescued and are seeking caring, suitable, permanent new homes where they will be loved, respected and have a new chance in life.
N.B We always carry out a pre-adoption home visit. This is an informal visit which takes place in your home. We provide any advice you may need about caring for and settling in new cats or kittens – incl health care, feeding, holiday arrangements, dangers in your home etc. We also look at the location of your home to assess for hazards such as easy access to busy roads or for indoor only homes to advise on making windows or balconies safe.
Our cats have varied temperaments and needs so we also discuss what ‘sort’ of cats would be suitable for you, your family, your lifestyle and your home.
Once a successful home visit has been carried out you will be invited back by appointment to meet suitable cats either at our Rescue centre or at our local foster homes and choose your new feline companion(s) .PLEASE NOTE: If you have not had a successful home visit you cannot choose or reserve cats at one of our Open Days.
